Parrish Art Museum
In this expanded cinema event featuring 21 artists and organized in collaboration with Microscope Gallery, the New York based Optipus collective and orchestra will perform a new live multi-projection and sound performance composed by Bradley Eros. Celebrating the natural world with a focus on water throughout history, Optipus will combine original and found imagery, including hand-painted slides, Super 8mm and 16mm films, overhead projections and digital video with original music and sound relating to and referencing nature.
As in their most recent performance, The Owl Flies at Twilight, presented in January as part of the Whitney Museum’s"Dreamlands: Expanded," the work consists of three distinct movements, examining specific relationships between vision and sound, the latter divided into distinct sections featuring strings, percussion, and electronics. The group features21 artists, with 13 contributing to the visual score extended over large projection screens (Lary 7, Bradley Eros, Alison Nguyen, Lily Jue Sheng, Antonia Kuo, Simon Liu, Joel Schlemowitz, Kenneth Zoran Curwood, Katherine Bauer, Rachael Guma, Genevieve H-K, Gill Arno, Tim Geraghty), and 8 to the musical (Mia Theodoratus, Laura Ortman, Zach Layton, Gabriel Guma, Richard Sylvarnes, Masami Tomihisa, Kevin Shea, Victoria Keddie), using a variety of film/video formats and instruments that are made or altered by the artists.
For the 10th and final event of “Dreamlands: Expanded“, a series of expanded cinema events organized by Microscope in collaboration with the Whitney Museum of American Art as part of the exhibition “Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905-2016“, I will be a part of a new multi-projection and sound performance The Owl Flies at Twilight composed by the Optipus collective & orchestra in its largest configuration to date featuring 28 artists.
Projections in various formats by Bradley Eros, Lary Seven, Katherine Bauer, Rachael Guma, Genevieve H-K, Kenneth Zoran Curwood, Joel Schlemowitz, Tim Geraghty, Sarah Halpern, Simon Liu, Alison Nguyen, Lily Jue Sheng, Antonia Kuo, Gill Arno, Scott Kiernan, Shona Masarin & Andrew Hurst.
Sound organized by Mia Theodoratus (strings), Michael Evans (percussion), Victoria Keddie(electronics), with: Richard Sylvarnes, Gabriel Guma, Rachelle Rahme, Zach Layton, Laura Ortman, David Grollman, Kevin Shea, Jake Naussbaum, Rachael Guma.
Optipus is a nomadic group of chameleon artists, cine-scientists in search of a laboratory, shape-shifting according to site-specific requirements. The group embraces the ephemeral cinema of unfixed forms and open composition. Optipus’s members emerge in myriad collaborations, producing works and events, soundtracks and invented instruments, video edits and film loops, and expanded cinema and immersive installations. Optipus has been previously seen at various venues including The Kitchen, Anthology Film Archives, Participant Inc., New York University, Microscope Gallery, Bobby Redd Project Space (The Church), Millennium Film Workshop and others.

An inherent essence of the human race is its capability to communicate and create new methods for translating ideas and experiences. In turn, as a species, our communication patterns evolve and develop. We are now host to over 6000 spoken languages and numerous written forms. With the onset of coding, SMS, emoji, gifs, and stickers in the digital age, we have now constructed an era of Neo-Hieroglyphics.
Invocations delves into the deconstruction of forms and movement to cultivate new meaning and space. Does the refinement of geometric systems forge a different kind of understanding? Does the formulation of contemporary rituals, binding technology and basic primal urges, summon new dialects to comprehend?
